Most of us believe we don’t have enough to succeed, that we need more money, better looks, more friends, we believe that success will come later, that the time isn’t right, that we don’t have a chance. Unlike Snoop Dogg’s trait of turning everything into gold chains, most of us actually depreciate our assets. By negativity we actively limit the strength of our resources and so make ourselves less likely to succeed. And even if we believe we have positives, we usually think they’re not enough. Snoop Dogg, for all his many negatives, took what little he had and sold the hell out of it, turning a low life into the life of one of the world’s most unique stars. And so it is that Snoop Dogg becomes a role model example of appreciating what you have and of making the absolute most of it, and for this writer, and hopefully for yourself too, dear reader, that is one hell of an important lesson to learn.
